    The best and worst states to work in a dental practice: 2017

    From 1 to 50, we looked at each state to see how it really stacks up for dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and dental front office team members.

     


    New Hampshire

    (tied with Massachusetts and Iowa)

    Tied with Iowa and its letter-heavy New England compatriot for third overall, New Hampshire is a solid place for dentists. The Granite state boasts the seventh highest median income, but the high cost of living might be a deterrent for some (all that skiing gets expensive). The big price tag may also contribute to the high financial savvy of NH residents, who ranked second overall in knowledge of how to stretch their money. New Hampshire also has the highest percentage of adolescents who visited a dentist in the past year, but despite the teens good dental attendance, overall ranks slightly below the middle of the pack for overall oral health. However, this tiny state's high rankings in education and low percentages on Medicaid (ranking sixth and fifth respectively) make New Hampshire an attractive option.
